Broadening My Horizons

Three Obscure Olympic "Games" (that I didn't know about until this year...)


1)Group Rhythmic Gymnastics (with hoops & clubs, ropes, balls and ribbons)

2)Synchronized Diving

3)Trampolining


Did you discover any new games??

Did you know that speed walking is an olympic sport? They "walk" a 10k (I think) and there is a male and female winner-both of the 2008 gold medalists were from Russia. I just learned about this from the news moments ago!

i discovered the trampoline, too, which was super weird to me.

i have never actually watch water polo before and i was absolutely amazed at the strength they need. crazy.

the olympic synchro diving coach used to live in moultrie (where i grew up) and he coached a ton of my friends who were all divers. it was weird to see him on tv. you gotta know i felt pretty cool, too, knowing an olympic someone.
